Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, April 5


March 21- April 19

Suddenly you're fearless. Your ambitions dangle like a carrot, and your urgency drums on you like a stick. But even though you're all about energy and effort today, don't go charging off without locking up or tying down the stuff you have to leave behind. You could be gone for up to a month, and there's no telling who could steal your trophies. Or what circumstances might undo all your hard work. This is where it pays to have friends and neighbours you can trust. Stay in touch with the right people and you won't have to worry about a thing.

April 20-May 20

It's a great time for you to take command. You're feeling strong and creative, and you know you can get the job done. Do so gently. Energies are running high all around today, and tempers could flare at a moment's notice. You have to be in charge of this ship today, and you want nothing but smooth sailing on your watch. Make sure you treat your friends and coworkers with respect, and don't bark orders. Make well-placed suggestions, and stay on task yourself.


May 21-June 21

Memories are elastic. You can stretch them in any direction and add new dialogue until you come up with a happy ending. But instead of messing with the past, find better, braver ways to change your mood. Dangle a few rewards in front of yourself and watch those attitudes adjust. Yes, a little bit of greed might be OK if it brings you closer to some worthwhile goal, but don't lose hold of your artistic side as those ambitions flare. Creativity and personal gain are two different things. Enjoy this day of vision and action, and don't look back.


June 22-July 22

Civilisation is too much with you now. Walls and straight lines are making you apprehensive. So much for appreciating architecture and urban planning. What's up with all this wildness, anyway? You're a free spirit in need of some elbow room, or a hunted animal trying to escape the hounds? Your answer to that question might not be totally convincing, since words and actions will probably be at odds today. Please find out why you're running. Maybe there's an easier, happier way. The world will look a whole lot friendlier after you catch your breath.


July 23-August 22

Face it — you're in love with life. Actually, life has been in love with you for as long as you can remember, now that you cast new light on the evidence. Fierce passion will underline every gesture you make toward others. And they are always grateful to receive anything from you. Start being more generous toward loved ones and strangers. Keep that smile on your face and that song in your heart, and today the world will eat out of your hand. Naturally, you'll feed it only the best, right?


August 23-September 22

To what do your neighbours owe this testy mood? The truth is, you're feeling at odds with yourself more than anything (or anyone) else. Do try to keep your demands reasonable today while you work through this unsettling energy. What you really want could soon show up, but it's more likely to come your way if you don't burn any bridges in the meantime. Put your energy into something constructive, like a big project at the office or cleaning up your house. You'll feel better if you're proactive instead of reactive.


September 23-October 22

You're normally so agreeable, so tactful and charming — what happened? Just kidding! Well, mostly. You do seem to be a little cheekier than usual. Saying what you really think is rare for you, so today will be a well-deserved departure from the norm. You'll let people know exactly what's on your mind. And at least you're listening fairly to their thoughts and responses, too. The beauty of all this is that your wild suggestions just might work. Give everyone time to absorb the solid method hidden within your current madness.


October 23 – November 22

Today could get a little crazy. In fact, some level of chaos will be hard to avoid, because you're feeling pumped up and just a wee bit out of control. It's all too easy now to let your temper flare. If that happens, try not to make a bad situation worse. Calm yourself immediately. Take a walk around the block if you have to, or count slowly to ten — whatever works to bring yourself to a more normal range of feeling and expression. Then focus on the good in your life, and find ways to make it better.


November 23-December 20

Was that you who just went streaking by? Judging from that grin, this has to be fun. But be sure to hang onto your dignity. They can't call you lazy today, assuming they can even see what you're doing. Clearly you've mastered the process, although it's not always going to be about who travels farthest or finishes first. Imagine what it would be like to do what's never been done before. Of course, that'll mean slowing down on your victory lap so they can get a good look at you.


December 21-January 19

Arrogance can be a tragic flaw. The first sign is when you find yourself alone at the top of the heap. Does this place seem strangely familiar? Didn't you once see the gods strike someone down from up here? You'd better come back to earth ASAP. Stop isolating yourself from people who are just as good as you are. Break out of the spinning loop that your past behaviour set in motion. Try something new today. Get off your high horse and join the fray.


January 20-February 18

The past was marvellous, but it's done. The scores are in, and everyone agrees you won that round. But do you really need to take another victory lap? You should probably be clearing the way toward your future. That's going to be a bit more challenging, since you don't know what you'll need. Certain variables may not make sense even when you get someone to explain. Be as smart and good as you can be. Today's actions could lock in the best results. Hey, it's worth a shot, isn't it?


February 19-March 20

Other people see you as nave. You're even more aware of it today than usual. You feel rather confused about the state of your life. The good news is you're aware that this is nothing more than a brief adjustment period. A project you've been working on may need some analysis to get it back on track. Or your finances might need attention. Whatever's on your plate, don't fret over it. Just jot down some notes and trust that things will be fine. Soon, you'll be playing with a full deck once again.
